  • Terra Ferea, Greek Organic (Bio) Lentils, 500gr, carton box :

    Traditional Hellenic Variety ''Demetra''.  One of our traditional dishes of great nutritional value, that brings back memories of Greece, with happy family moments around the table.  

    Lentils are legumes along with other types of beans. They grow in the rich Greek land in pods that contain either one or two lentil seeds that are round, oval or heart-shaped disks and are oftentimes smaller than the tip of a pencil eraser. They may be sold whole or split into halves with the brown and green varieties being the best at retaining their shape after cooking. Compared to other types of dried beans, lentils are relatively quick and easy to prepare. They readily absorb a variety of wonderful flavors from other foods and seasonings, are high in nutritional value and are available throughout the year.

    Lentils, a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. But this is far from all lentils have to offer. Lentils also provide good to excellent amounts of seven important minerals, our B-vitamins,iron, and protein—all with virtually no fat. The calorie cost of all this nutrition? Just 230 calories for a whole cup of cooked lentils. This tiny nutritional giant fills you up—not out.

    These lentils are wispy, so boil fast and there is no need to soaked them in water. Mainly eaten boiled, but also great as a garnish to meat, or in salads. They are one of the key elements of the Greek Mediterranean Diet.
